11:02 pm
in it he writes he wanted to trigger an anti-muslim revolution in norwegian society. many of the passages were taken right from unabomber ted kaczynski. tomorrow breivik will be arraigned in court, charged with terrorism. tonight, nbc's jay gray talked exclusively to breivik's lawyer. >> he believes in a revolution, and he believes the only way he can make the revolution is through violence. >> reporter: you feel as if he's accomplished he's goal? >> well, it's difficult to understand, of course. but in his head he takes pride in this, yes. >> again, breivik's attorney there. meanwhile, the search continued today for those still missing. mourners in this country continue to take in the tragedy as well. here in washington the flag at the norwegian embassy was at half staff today, and flowers were laid in memory of the victims. some developing political news tonight. congressman david wu says he will not seek re-election but he will not resign. that announcement came around
11:03 pm
the same time that house minority leader nancy pelosi called for a formal ethics investigation. a young woman is accusing wu of "an unwanted sexual encounter." there are reports tonight of mounting pressure for the oregon democratic congressman to step down. after a day of intense talks, congressional leaders still do not have a deal on how to raise the nation's debt limit. house republicans and senate democrats polished up rival plans today. lawmakers wanted to have a deal in place to protect foreign markets. that did not happen. nonetheless, asian markets at least have opened without any major swings so far. but many believe the major worry is nine days away. that's when this country would default on its loans unless there's a compromise. >> i would prefer to have a bipartisan approach to solve this problem. if that's not possible possible, i and my republican colleagues in the house are prepared to move on our own. >> today? >> today.
11:04 pm
>> senate democratic leader harry reid says he has a plan that will meet two of the gop's main criteria, bigger spending cuts and no new taxes. it's a parent's worst nightmare. a baby boy has been missing for more than two days now. police say his 16-year-old babysitter kidnapped him. tonight there's word he might be in the d.c. area. police canvassed neighborhoods in montgomery and prince george's counties tonight lo looking for little ki'yauch. elaine reyes joining us with more on this story. what's the word on the amber alert? >> reporter: well, craig, there is no amber alert at the moment because police don't believe the child is in any danger. however, relatives are also concerned about the baby in the extreme heat and they're hoping someone in this area has seen him. this is baby ki'yauch birch. >> pray for my son. pray he's okay. and pray that ain't nothing been done, no harm to him. he only seven months. >> reporter: he is missing, and
11:05 pm
his family is desperate to get him back. >> my son's father left him in the house with some female and she walked off with my son. and this happened 5:00 yesterday evening and he just calling the police this morning. >> reporter: ki'yauch was last seen with 16-year-old jonae boozer. she was taking care of him. but no one has been able to get in touch with her for more than 24 hours. not even the teenager's parents know where she is. >> she has friends in the prince george's county area. so with that we want as much as possible the plea to get out. because every minute, every second counts, particularly in this hot weather, that we don't want him in a hot car, in a hot home. just make the call. >> reporter: police canvassed the areas where the child and his babysitter were last seen. ki'yauch's family spent the day praying and hoping to hear something. >> i don't know if he's out here in the heat, if he's eaten. we don't know what's going on. >> that's my son. somebody walking around
11:06 pm
baltimore with my son. how you think i feel? >> reporter: now, here's a look at that babysitter again. jonae boozer was last seen wearing a purple leopard-colored top. she has a blond mohawk and multiple facial piercings. she's about 5'4" and weighs about 155 pounds. if you have seen her or the baby, you're asked to call police. craig, back to you. >> elaine reyes from the newsroom for us tonight. elaine, thanks. a man is accused of attacking a maryland state trooper with a knife, but his daughter says there's more to the story. the alleged assault happened at about 6:30 yesterday morning on the inner loop of 495 at 295 near the woodrow wilson bridge. officials say 54-year-old james howard of hyattsville called police after hitting a guardrail. when a trooper got there, police say howard approached the trooper's car and used a kitchen knife to stab him through an open window. but howard's daughter says he would never hurt anyone.
11:07 pm
>> whenever you're in an accident you call the police. okay. but you're not going to call the police on the highway that your car ended up at just to stab them if something's not mentally wrong with you, you know. so something has to be really wrong with my dad for him to do something like this if what they're saying is true. >> police say howard may have been trying to hurt himself by initiating that attack. the trooper was treated and released for stab wounds to his hand. howard remains hospitalized. he will face charges once he's released. a historic and emotional day for new york state as nearly 1,000 same-sex couples tied the knot there. gay marriage became legal at midnight in new york state. anxious couples were already lined up at courthouses. 639 marriage licenses were picked up in new york city alone. at niagara falls one couple who has five children and 12 grandchildren said they could barely believe their moment had arrived. >> i keep thinking there should be something more that i have to do to get here.
11:08 pm
i keep thinking that it's just not real. >> reporter: some protesters rallied outside some of those courthouses, but the celebrations continued as new york became the sixth and largest state to recognize same-sex marriage. many same-sex couples who said their vows today traveled to new york from other parts of the country. but as they returned home, some of the newlyweds will find that their marriage benefits will not follow them. as george lewis reports tonight, differences from state to state make the law very confusing. >> reporter: tom bechtold and steve susy came all the way from los angeles to be married in new york this morning. >> we came to be married because we are not allowed to be married in our own home state. >> reporter: that's because in 2008 californians passed an initiative called proposition 8, outlawing same-sex marriage. >> god's compassion is the glory of life. >> reporter: 18,000 same-sex couples were wed in california before the measure passed. those marriages are still
11:09 pm
considered legal. but any same-sex marriages performed after the passage of prop 8 are not. so when tom and steve return here to los angeles, their marriage will not be recognized as legal by california. they'll have rights as domestic partners but not the same rights as married people. >> this is becoming a gigantic mess. we are going to have states with different laws relating to recognition. >> reporter: new york now becomes one of six states plus the district of columbia where same-sex marriage is legal. in addition, maryland and rhode island have pledged to recognize marriages of same-sex couples from out of state. but 41 other states have said they will not recognize those marriages. and under the defense of marriage act, neither will the federal government. ron wallen from indio, california says the law is hurting him. he married his partner, tom corollo, but now that tom has died ron is ineligible for social security survivor's benefits and he's forced to sell
11:10 pm
their home. >> we should most assuredly be allowed to have every single right that our fellow americans have. >> reporter: rights now being fought over state by state and at the federalevel. george lewis, nbc news, los angeles. >> according to a new pew research center poll, the american public is evenly split on gay marriage. 45% are in favor. 46% are opposed. still ahead tonight, when a collection turns into an addiction. >> this is my pant collection. >> but you don't wear pants. >> but i don't wear pants. >> meet a woman whose hoarding problem is taking over her life. also, the woman who's accusing dominique strauss khan of sex assault. why she says she waited before reporting the alleged crime. we'll hear from her. and a long line to meet an up-and-coming author. the life or death battle that prompted that local boy to start writing. chuck bell, what you got, buddy?

11:15 pm
collections. spinning wheels have taken over her dining room. her stovetop is covered in china. she has more linens than she can count, and none of them have ever been used. lynne's belongings have taken over. and she says she's worried she's become a full-fledged hoarder. >> there is just bags of it. bags of it. and thrown on top of it are more purchases. >> reporter: hartford hospital's dr. david tollan is well known in his area of expertise. he's looking for early signs of the hoarding disorder in lynne. >> does the amount of that stuff get in the way of your ability to use any of the parts of your home? >> reporter: dr. tollan believes lynne is on her way, somewhere early on the hoarding spectrum. >> maybe where we see lynne is right at the beginning of that escalation. what she's told us is that she's always had this acquiring habit. these tendencies have always been there. what she ended up doing was changing her occupation and changing her social life so that they would accommodate that acquiring habit.
11:16 pm
the habit is now starting to get out of control. >> i'm going to go home. i'm getting rid of my clothes. i'm going to make the changes that he suggested. doing other social things with my auction friends. go dancing. go out to eat. things like that. >> reporter: lynne set her session with dr. tollan was inspiring. >> i'm really determined now to make some changes. >> reporter: but just one week later we watched lynne unload her car after what appears to be another successful trip to the auction. >> that was carrie lee maylin reporting there. if you suspect someone you know is a hoarder, it's important to get them help. in extreme cases hoarding can lead to health and safety hazards. all right. turning to the weather now. >> yeah. >> it's going to be relatively cooler? >> yes. we are still not going to have any cold snap coming your way anytime soon. i don't want to get your hopes up falsely. nonetheless, some cooler days are coming back. temperatures actually closer to average for a change.
11:17 pm
it's good to be average every once in a while. outside right now on a sunday night, still awfully soupy outside. if you haven't been outside in the last couple of hours or last couple of days, you haven't missed much. not much has changed yet. current temperatures still 86 degrees at national airport as you look at the jefferson memorial alongside the tidal basin in downtown d.c. there. 86 our current temperature. the dew points are in the mid 70s right now. so the heat index still remains very high at 94. for the record today, our high 97 degrees after another record-tying 84 degree start this morning. and reagan national now has not been below 80 degrees since thursday morning. this is an amazing weather statistic. not below 80 since 8:00 a.m. thursday morning. this is now 87 hours in a row and counting. the old record was only 68 hours, set last july. so this is an unbelievable stretch of warm weather that we've endured around here.
